ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Rapper-actor Common is headlining a University of Michigan charity concert to raise money for a summer leadership camp for Detroit youth.

The Grammy- and Academy Award-winning artist plans to perform April 17 at Hill Auditorium in Ann Arbor. The show caps a day of events, including a “Shark Tank”-style business pitch competition, fashion show, farmers’ market and student performances.

“Glory” - a collaboration between Common and John Legend - was the anthem for the movie “Selma.” It won an Oscar for best song.

SpringFest 2015 is presented by MUSIC Matters. MUSIC stands for Michigan Undergrads Serving in the Community.

Tickets go on sale Thursday. They start at $25 for the public and $15 for students.

MUSIC Matters’ goal is to bring one show annually to campus and donate the proceeds.
